Las Vegas Bowl officials are doing what they can to keep Brigham Young and Utah separate this week, even at events they attend together.
But it seemed only a matter of time before something happened leading up to Saturday’s 12:30 p.m. game at Sam Boyd Stadium, and it didn’t take long.
At Wednesday night’s welcome reception at Fremont Street Experience, Utah defensive tackle Viliseni Fauonuku took the microphone and blasted BYU.
“BYU, you all are a good team,” he said. “But you’re a dirty team. Don’t start nothing, won’t be nothing.”
Video then shows some of the Utes happily going crazy.
Yeah, this is a wild week.
